I’ve toyed with the idea of starting a blog for a while.
I mean, I love to write. I’ve just switched to being a creative writing major at school, I keep journal upon journal, and I’ve been writing short stories since I learned my ABCs. Writing is just an extension of who I am, so why shouldn’t I do it publicly?
“But what would I write about?” my brain cried as I absentmindedly scrolled through the internet, trying not to think about all of the responsibilities I ignored. “Nobody wants to hear anything I have to say.” It wasn’t until a good friend of mine showed me her own blog that I began to realize that maybe I could actually do this. I’ve spent so long writing in a journal, maybe I actually had something to share with the world.
I write poems, short stories, and personal pieces. But most importantly I’m just trying to get through everything as eloquently and as poised as possible (we all know that isn’t happening, but a girl can dream). I’m not quite sure what my goal for this website is just yet, but I know that can grow and change with me as I grow and change as a writer.
I hope you come along on this journey with me. We’ve both got a lot of reading to do.
